Rita Ora puts in late contender for 2014s funniest Twitter fail
Oct 31, 2014 7:52am | Fact Magazine

Think A$AP Mob tanked at last night’s Culture Clash? At least they’re not Rita Ora.

The ‘Hot Right Now’ singer, who actually appeared at 2012′s Culture Clash with Major Lazer, put in a late contender for social media fail of the year this morning, tweeting that she would release a new single on Monday if said tweet got 100,000 retweets.

Despite Ora having almost 4 million followers, the tweet was only retweeted by 1,000 people, and was swiftly deleted (though Ora did RT a couple of sympathetic tweets from fans).

If you see ads emerge for a new Roc Nation social media manager in the coming weeks, you’ll know why.

The band supported the release of their new album, They Want My Soul, by performing renditions of “Inside Out”, “Do You”, and “Rent I Pay”. Watch the replay below.

Following their Daily Show appearance, Spoon will head across the Atlantic to kick of a fresh leg of tour dates. They’ll bounce through Europe in early November and return stateside come December, including a New Year’s Eve show at the Dallas House of Blues. See their full itinerary here.

Hear Chief Keefs new mixtape Back From The Dead 2
Oct 31, 2014 7:32am | Fact Magazine

Chief Keef has dropped the second instalment of Back From The Dead just hours after unveiling his collaborative mixtape with Gucci Mane.

Given it’s his first solo tape in over a year, following last October’s Almighty So, Back From The Dead 2 is a fairly patchy affair spread across 20 tracks, with production from Keef himself alongside 808 Mafia and Young Chop. Gucci Mane turns up on ‘Paper’ while Tadoe adds a verse to ‘Blurry’. Grab it from DatPiff or purchase the deluxe version on iTunes.

The sudden release of this tape and the Gucci collaboration comes just a few weeks after Keef was dropped by his record label Interscope. Meanwhile, Gucci’s still in jail but that has stopped him releasing a stack of new material. He recently penned a letter to fans pledging to take his career to the next level upon his release, currently scheduled for the end of 2016.

The War on Drugs perform Burning on Conan watch
Oct 31, 2014 7:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

Most of the press The War on Drugs have been receiving lately has focused around Mark Kozelek’s constant trolling of the band. But lest ye forget, they also put out one of the best albums of the year with Lost in the Dream. (Though, to be fair, Kozelek’s latest Sun Kil Moon record is pretty great, too.) Last night, TWOD supported that excellent effort with a performance of “Burning” on Conan. Watch the replay below.

While waiting for Kozelek to “get over [his] fucking self,” The War on Drugs will be on tour through Europe and Australia in the coming months.. Amongst all the international dates, however, is a gig in Portland for 94.7’s A December to Remember show — though like many of the dates on their schedule, that’s already sold out. Check out the band’s full itinerary here.

Flying Lotus video for Ready Err Not is a Halloween treat watch
Oct 31, 2014 7:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

Happy Halloween from Flying Lotus. The producer aka Steven Ellison has unveiled his extra spooky video for “Ready Err Not”, one of the many great tracks appearing on his fifth LP, You’re Dead!.

Created by British animator David Firth, the clip features an array of terrifying imagery, including a decapitated FlyLo, giant spiders with one eyeball, mutant children who are joined together by their intestines, and a pair of loving cannibals. Even if you’re familiar with Firth’s gruesome work, the video will leave you feeling dead inside.

Tldr; this is probably the most fucked up thing you’ll see all day.

Oct 31, 2014 6:15am | Fact Magazine

If you thought Flying Lotus’s Halloween vid was gruesome enough, look away now.

Dizzee Rascal dons a wipe-clean fisherman’s jacket for some fun and games with a machetes in this ultra-gory video for ‘Couple Of Stacks’, which pastiches loads of horror classics along the way.

Play name-that-film in the vid over at Noisey, and beware definitely not safe for work/children/people with an aversion to watching heads getting split open.

Oct 31, 2014 5:36am | Fact Magazine

One of London’s hidden gems unveils a third shop.

The two existing Flashback Records outlets in Islington and Crouch End are a favourite haunt of many north London vinyl snoopers, with stock covering all genres and a regular calendar of in-store gigs to boot, so we’re chuffed to hear that the indie is about to open yet another shop.

The new premises is located on Bethnal Green Road in Shoreditch, just a stone’s throw from Brick Lane, and is one of several new record shops to open its doors in London this year. We’ve already welcomed a second Sister Ray just up the road from Flashback at Shoreditch’s Ace Hotel, as well as Love Vinyl in Hoxton, while vinyl junkies south of the river now have Rye Wax and YAM Records in Peckham.

Flashback Records opens its Shoreditch branch this Saturday (November 1) find it at 131 Bethnal Green Road, E2 7DG.
